The history of gay and lesbian cinema is a storied one, and one that became much larger with the recent success of Brokeback Mountain, Capote, and Transamerica. But the history of gay and lesbian filmmakers is its own story. In The View from Here, queer directors and screenwriters – some mainstream, others who work defiantly from the margins – speak passionately about the medium, in particular their personal experiences navigating through the often-cynical and cruel film industry. All of them offer fascinating anecdotes and opinions about cinema, and speak candidly about their attempts to combat studio apathy and demands of .the market. and still create films that are entertaining, engaging, and truthful. Containing numerous black-and-white screen stills and production photos, The View from Here provides fascinating insight into the filmmaking process – a book for serious film fans and gay culture aficionados alike
